This week our designers got their bonafide Hollywood challenge—design a dress for a character in a specific film genre. Each designer chose from 5 genres: Sci-Fi, Western, Period Piece, Film Noir and Action Adventure. Although Epperson and Shirin were worried about drawing Western, I thought Nicholas and Ra'Mon may have set themselves up for failure with Sci-Fi. At Mood, Ra'Mon choose a neon green pleather that pretty much sealed the deal on his failure for me. In the work room, Carol Hannah loved on Logan, Nicholas ventured to Narnia with an Ice Queen outfit, and Ra'Mon scrapped his design with two hours left. On the runway, Michael and Nina were still absent—replaced by John Varvatos and Zoe Glassner, who were joined by Arianne Phillips, costume designer for Walk The Line. Surprisingly, I thought the judges made a much better decision with the top three this week, and I thought any of them could have won. Epperson's western look with a Cold Mountain-esque story was powerful and cool, and Christopher's vampire bride was looking good even though she wasn't exactly historically accurate. But Nicholas took home the prize with his frozen interstellar queen, finally making lace and white fabric work for him. The bottom was a little less clear. While I love Carol Hannah, I thought her female assassin looked like a vinyl clad hooker. But Louise with a lackluster film noir dress, Ra'Mon with his half-finished, home sewn dress, and Gordana with a too-plain flapper dress wound up in the bottom. Although Gordana's was a too literal 20s dress and Louise's was a snoozefest, Ra'Mon went home for another rushed garment.
Did you think it was fair judging this week? Does anyone else think Collier Strong might be a cyborg? Did you think the clearly-smitten John Varvatos was openly hitting on Matar on the runway? Do you think Ra'Mon's creativity should have made up for his poor execution? Sound off!
YES! I LOOK FORWARD TO #GROWINGYOUNGER

You know, I was mad about Gordana being in the bottom for a while, but just looking at it again right now, her model looks like a really hot 60 year old. I mean, some of the other models look sort of older, but Gordana’s just, whoa. I’m sure that poor girl is not even remotely as old as she looks in the picture.
